SignUpGenius Software


 

SignUpGenius is an online tool for volunteer organizing and event planning. The service provides nonprofit organizations, schools, businesses and groups with an alternative to “reply-all” emails, phone trees and paper sign ups, and helps visitors sign up for tasks online. SignUpGenius is suitable for groups regardless of their size or operating budget.

Users can choose from various theme templates, and SignUpGenius lets users customize online sign ups to schedule volunteers, fundraise, track volunteer tasks and more. At the same time, email reporting enables coordination by keeping event planners up-to-date on volunteer participation and event details.

Two types of accounts are available: Basic and Pro, which itself comes in three different levels. Pro account users have access to extra features, including custom themes, multiple administrators, no-ads sign ups, volunteer hour tracking/reporting, an email messaging center and more.

Pros

This website is readily available and has a user friendly interface. I also think it has an established name and known among the public, also they do offer some free forms.

Cons

I honestly do not like the logo, I think it could be enlarged with a different color scheme that may grab more attention.

SignUpGenius is Ideal for Businesses in Need of Streamlined Organization Events

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

SignUpGenius covers a large area of specific needs for businesses and is one of the best options when it comes to event organizing.

Pros

Organizing and managing events can be a stressful task. An event can be made or broken on the applications it uses to set up and run an event. Luckily SignUpGenius provides one of the best and most reliable tools for events on the market.
From quick set up to strong applications for keeping track of attendees and keeping them informed, SignUpGenius is the go-to for small and large businesses.
The platform offers a Basic (Free) option and several pay options, each with a myriad of offerings that enhance organizing events.

Cons

SignUpGenius has very few downsides. While the Basic (Free) option covers the basics, some might balk at paying a monthly fee for certain add-ons.

Very easy to use after a short learning curve. I've used it for two years, and have never had an issue with creating a sign-up. You can even use previous signups as a template for another signup. The number of options when creating a signup are numerous and with a little bit of work, you can have a custom signup for your event.

Cons

The learning curve can be a bit of a challenge depending on how you are configuring your signup, but once mastered, you will fine.

Intuitive & Familiar for both Organizer & Recipient

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A
Pros

SignUp Genius is simple to use - both as an organizer of an event and as the recipient who needs to respond. To be effective in getting a response, software like this needs to be easily accessible, non-intimidating, and familiar for the recipients. SignUP Genius accomplishes this - it is easily recognizable now as the go-to software of this kind. It allows for great customization, making set-up easy and fitting for any event.

Cons

Sometimes the ads and/or layout can come across as a bit cluttered. If SignUp Genius weren't already so recognizable with consumers, I would worry that the clutter could confuse or delay people. But it's not an insurmountable issue. Just something that SignUp Genius could work on - making the layout look a bit more forward/trendy and not so dense with tense.

We use online sign-up sheets for a volunteer fire department with over 100 firefighters assigned to five different stations. Most of us have full-time jobs outside of being firefighters, so finding a way to coordinate activities in a fair and consistent way was time consuming and quite challenging. Online sign-up sheets from SignUpGenius streamlined our process, while making it very easy for our firefighters to use. We post a sign-up sheet electronically ,and it is instantly available to everyone. At the same time, one person can manage the sheets remotely, so it eliminated the need for paper sheets and multiple trips to stations to post, review, and collect those sheets.

Likes Least

What's not to like about the capabilities of this way of doing online sign-up sheets? The creators of Sign Up Genius built a product that takes a complicated process and makes it a smooth operation. It is so easy to use that there is seldom a need to ask for help. Then the friendly folks at Sign Up Genius are lightning fast to response on the rare occasions when you need help.

Recommendations

If you are looking for a way to simplify sign-up sheets, then you simply must take a look at SignUpGenius. There may be other providers of this service, but it would be a cold day in Minnesota before you will find one that stands up to the ease of use and functionality of SignUpGenius!

If you are ever looking to get people to sign up and keep track of who helped with what and when, sign up genius is a great software. You can create multiple events and invite your entire team to volunteer for work. You can also use this for group gatherings and family events. It's easy to use and doesn't require much knowledge of the software.

It is very simple to use but there are a few things I would like more of such as customizability with my event pages and signups.

The ease and user friendliness of this tool is impressive. The notifications it gives to participants makes life so much easier, and automated. Many people are familiar with it because local schools use it extensively. Clients coming to classes can pay, and annotate their reserved places. It makes it easy to cancel as well, which cuts back on no shows from people who don't like to talk live in that regard.

Cons

I have no issues but would suggest the interface be modernized somewhat, with a few more customizing options as far as visuals.

Best and easiest way to get large groups signed up for events/potlucks.

Pros

It's easy to start using and easy for people to sign up, which is a big deal...otherwise people get frustrated and stop the process midstream. Lots of templates to choose from. Free service still gets you a lot. Love the messaging abilities to all of your signees.

Cons

Their ads are very intrusive...although I understand this is purposeful as they are looking to have you upgrade to remove the ads. Also, you have to submit any custom photo and wait until it's approved before proceeding. They don't give you the dimensions for your custom pictures, nor allow you to resize them.

Hi, April. Thank you for your feedback. It may be helpful to know that you do not have to wait for your image to be approved to continue creating your sign up. After you select your theme and upload your custom image, click "continue" at the bottom of the page to continue creating your sign up. Once your image is approved, it will replace the stock picture you see in the top left corner of the theme.

To upload the custom image/logo, please use a JPG, GIF, or PNG image. The image needs to be under 1 mb in size when uploaded, so you may need to re-size the image prior to uploading if you have a high-resolution image. All images will be re-sized to 350 pixels wide to fit on your sign up page. If you are using a transparent GIF or PNG, you should size your image at 325 pixels wide and 325 pixels long or less so that it will not have to be manipulated by our system.

This is a must have tool for any church or business that has to rely on a force of volunteers or people attending their events. It has helped me rest assure giving me some idea of how many people will attend and how many will be helping. It sure beats replying to a generic email.

Pros

SignUpGenius is incredible useful when it come to the life of our church. We are able to use it for all of out events, retreats, volunteers, and more. It gives us great access to info that lets us know how many people will becoming, how many volunteers we will have or still need, and we can communicate with all of them.

Pros:
-Easy and fast to create a sign up with many parameters
- Ability to tie into accepting payments or giving
- The process is easy for our members
- Great ability to communicate with the group and keep them updated
- Ability to see where we are lacking or need more signups or volunteers

Cons

The only con I have had is it is hard to get our older members to integrate into using it. Not really a fault of the company but it a difficulty. Not sure there is a way for the company to somehow be more senior friendly.

Ease of signing up and reminders about sign-up times - it has so many great customizable options to get exactly what you need.

Cons

I can't think of anything that I don't like about this software. PTA's in our area use this effectively to get event participation and volunteers.

Pros

Sign up Genius has made all the party planning i have to do for my children's school so easy. Getting parents to sign up to see options for what to bring is so easy because they can do it in like 2 clicks! I've never had participation like this before!

Cons

I wish you could use the "back to website" option in the "Silver" package option. It seems silly that wouldn't be available there. The next step up is over double the price.

I find the software useful for simple sign-ups, and it saves time by allowing many people to access the sign-up at one time and by sending reminders to the volunteers after they sign up.

Pros

For no-cost software, SignUpGenius provides a convenient platform for organizing volunteers to assist with projects.

Cons

The options for creating sign-up slots lack flexibility, and it is difficult to tailor the sign-up to match precisely my organization's needs.

Pros

SignUpGenius is a great tool for our school PTA parents to use to set up volunteering and item donation for events.

Cons

It is not very customizable in terms of layout or design. What you see is what you get and it's very bland.

Hi Aaron,

I wanted to let you know about the ways you can customize your sign up design. In Step 2: Themes, you can add your own image or logo to one of our themes to customize your sign up page.
Additionally, we offer the ability to build your own theme. This feature allows users to add multiple photos to a sign up layout as well as customize sign ups to perfectly match your group's style. Upload a unique image or browse our stock images and use our color palette to select complementary colors for your sign up theme background, buttons and text. You can learn more here: http://signupgeni.us/731r

Easy for organizers and volunteers, it sends automatic reminders and lets people choose their own roles. Wouldn't run an event without it.

Pros

You know who has cracked the code for volunteer sign up? The pros, the ones who live in the trenches of bringing people together to get stuff done - I'm talking about parents and teachers of young children. The PTA president, the room parent- the poor soul who got stuck organizing the spring auction again this year. Use their knowledge and get this great freemium tool that is really easy for volunteers and organizers with lots of reminders and communication tools on both sides. It has automatic reminders, and people can change their own roles. Matching people to the right role is the art of volunteer management - let them choose their job and stop herding cats and managing spreadsheets. I am currently using sign up genius to manage volunteers for a music festival, our events person used spreadsheet last year even though I shared this tool so when I took it over I was sure that this site was my first stop. I can see that the pro functions are really useful and we are not big enough to need them but if we did they would be fully worth it.

Cons

I wish I could email everyone that signed up since my last email for a volunteer sheet that is open for longer than a few days.
